[laughter] >> well, i worked for ten years up at the senate foreign relations committee when senator kerry wasn't the chairman, he was one of the other members of the committee. he's just not that popular on capitol hill. he hasn't worked well with other members. that was one of the problems he had when he ran for president. he's perceived as being stand offish, as being uninterested in their issues and in being kind of doctrinaire on policy. jon: but bob corker, the new mexico senator -- we'
you for reminding me of that chapter in my public clear and what you and john kerry accomplished together. i want to talk about the role of the united states, it is called upon to negotiate, to make it safer. certainly since world war ii, it has involved nuclear weapons and it does to this day as we discussed the future of nuclear entrance like, god forbid, iran intoork the nuclear club, which we don't want to see happen. we also know there came a new threat, terrorism, in a different form. biological and chemical weapons. organizations that attacked the united states and killed innocent people. but it was, i think last year or the year before, that we were briefed by the state department, department of defense, about the greatest threat to security in the united states and it wasn't either of those things. it was cybersecurity. i think you may have attended the brief, the classified briefing for members of the senate. democrats and republicans. they explained to us this invisible war that goes on even as we meet between the united states and many who are not our friends that are

disagree with. i also would suggest, once senator kerry gets confirmed for secretary of state, that he go to the region in the nearest possible time frame. he knows all the leaders there. he's known bibi netanyahu for 25 years, has a very close relationship with him, among others. and that in a nearer time frame after that, president obama go to the region, including israel, and take his own measure of the situation. it's pa reset moment, i think, for the region with israel as a player in the region, and for our policy to the region. >> i want to talk to you. you mentioned john kerry, the incoming secretary of state. he has called for a freezing of settlements, but he's also called for a two-state solution. how does he go to israel, netanyahu elected, at least in part, with the strong support of the right, who does not want that. how does john kerry go to israel, and to your point say, look, your future as a jewish democracy depends on you changing or breaking with some of the people who got you elected. how do you make that case? put yourself in his shoes. >> i wouldn't presume to tell b
